referencing Instruments Of The Middle Ages And Renaissance, 2xLP + Box, Boo, SBZ-3810
The book, originally published by Oxford University Press, is the centerpiece of this very interesting 2 disc box set. Like the recording, book chapters are grouped by instruments: Part I Middle Ages -- woodwind, keyboard, brass, strings, percussion, Part II -- same progression of instruments for Renaissance. The paper stock is superb, as are the illustrations, photographs, and discussion by Munrow.
